    Gander mountain is overpriced on just about everything. I haven't even been in one of their stores in over a year, because its not really worth it for me to spend so much extra money. I'm buying wads for about $6-7 a bag from Dawson Enterprises. You should really look around for another source for your components.

    Gander Mountain is high on everything! drhuner, give me a shout. I will get you some of the Downrange XL-1 1/8 (blue) wads. You will never try anything else.

    I bought Down Range Windjammer wads for just under $60.00 per 5,000 at Graf and Sons Missouri Fall Hdcp. Great wads

    I ran into the same price up hear in MN, use to buy the dusters on sale for 6.00 now there up to around 11 or 12 bucks a bag at gander. I went across the street to sportsmans warehouse and bought some for 6.50 a bag, not the dusters but they work just fine.

    Gander mountain seems to have adopted a policy of not handling reloading components, and keeping what's on the shelf priced very high.

    The really like to sell clothing to people with lots of money and not much common sense.

    I could get a combo pack with Gander logo T shirt and hat for only 20 bucks.

    What a deal.

    Keep it, guys. At that price you need it more than me.

    Reloading trapshooters/skeeters is not the "big-box" market... what they want is the weekend warrior or the seasonal hunter who is not price conscious and is willing to pay retail and for the conveniences of one-stop shopping.

    As a Duster distributor, their prices have only gone up a little. What kills me on them is shipping. By the time I get them here, I can buy most other brands for less.

    I have a few loyal customers. Several times a year we get up a sizable order. The Duster is a very good wad.
